A raw and vibrant songstress, Pontea was born and raised in LA. Her music is a perfect blend of R&B and soulful pop, infused with rhythmic beats and ambient synths. She loves mixing up her live shows with electronic and acoustic elements, blending hip-hop and R&B vibes with pop, house, and Latin grooves.
Playing piano since she was seven, Pontea’s love of the arts began at a young age, however she did not pursue music until after she graduated from UCLA with a BA in psychology. Once she decided to break through the limiting expectations of a woman’s role in her traditional culture, she was able to fully commit to her true passion – music. She has discovered a profound sense of empowerment through following her passion and being fully in her element, and hopes to inspire other girls and women to do the same.
Pontea has performed coast to coast, known for her multiform and captivating live shows that feature spontaneous beat boxing and serve as a testament to her eclectic flare. She recently released her debut EP, and is currently working on new creations. Unpredictable EP is available in all digital stores.
